“Beautiful Architecture”
Reviewed March 21, 2013

Tierra Patagonia was the first leg of our honeymoon. The newly opened hotel has spectacular interior and gorgeous view of the lake. The hotel was designed so it doesn't intrude the landscape of Patagonia. So we didn't get a full view of the architecture until we were right in front of the building.

Pros
- Amazing view of the lake from all the rooms and dining rooms
- Great spa with an outdoor jacuzzi. It's fun to sit in the outdoor jacuzzi especially with the wind blowing
- Many hiking choices for all different levels of hikers.
- Very friendly staff and tour guides
- Modern and chic interior design

Cons
- Breakfast starts at 7.30 am, which isn't enough time if you have a 8am hike
- Dinner time can get hectic so the service isn't always great
- The wine selections were mediocre
- No Internet in the room

All in all, we really enjoyed our stay at the Tierra Patagonia. The food was surprisingly good given the fact that it's so remotely located. Besides the food items offered on the menu, guests can put in special requests the night before. My husband was interested to try one of the Chilean specialty - completo. The chef did a great job. I didn't love the local wines at the hotel but do try the 'Calafate sour'. Calafate is a local berries, which is very tart. The locals make amazing Calafate liquor -- I wish I brought some back! Last but not least, the hotel adopted a sheep name 'Raymond'. Apparently he's very spoiled by the staff and can understand the word 'leche'. He's quite dirty from sleeping near the vent but he's really adorable and will respond if you say 'baaa'.

We know that in Latin America children are allowed to stay up late and run free - so be warned. We had noisy children running around during dinner.
If we had one overall comment to make it would be that we didnt stay long enough ( 3 nights) we should have done 4 to get the best from the excursions - which were fab ! Condors, mountains, vicunas ( walking around and on the menu - yummy!) glaciers, waterfalls, good walks. Great guides.
Food is fixed menu and had good variety at all 3 meals> we found plenty of choice in he wine and particularly liked the Pinot Noir and Sauvignan Blanc.
Great rooms all with wondrous views. Horizon Pool was fantastic.

Room Tip: The rooms are on 2 levels along a long corridor with spa at the far end. Its quite a long walk back...

Wow, what to say about this property!
It stays on one of the most beautiful places on earth and the architectural style really shines. Everything is in native wood and the hotel simply blends with nature.
You can view the Torres in full scale from your room, just beside the lake and surrounded by hundreds of animals.
The excursions are great, the meals were excellent and they probably have the best pool ever!
This is the best place to stay in Patagonia and a marvelous experience for everyone.
Heartly recommended!

The facility is an architectural achievement in every detail beginning with its exterior in perfect harmony with the terrain and an interior decorated with numerous wooden surfaces treatments and expressive yet subtle structural elements. The view from the main room is panoramic.
Our room was a two story suite with seating lounge at top level and sleeping and bath on lower level. Stairs down to lower level are cleverly constructed of wood treads, risers and integral hand rail. But tread edges are visually hard to see and dangerous. Room featured a two story window that made viewing the starry night a great treat with planets and stars down to the horizon.
Food was very creative and perfectly presented and prepared. Every meal choice of 2 appetizers-soup or salad,3 entrees-seafood, meat,or pasta and 2 desserts - cake or ice cream/ sherbets(which are outstanding)
Drinks are included with stay from the well stocked top shelf bar.
Excursion experiences were quite varied from short easy hikes to more challenging including long drives and chances to see all portions of the park. Guides are very knowledgeable and friendly.

We missed using the pool spa facility because didn't open to 9AM and we were on excursions then. Looked outstanding and talked to others that skipped an 1/2 day excursion to use and relax.

Room Tip: Stay 4 night minimum. Try Calafate Sour in addition to the usual pisco sour.

I stayed there for 5 nights. The hotel is beautiful with an amazing view over Sarmiento Lake. The guides are very helpful and knowledgeable to advise you about what excursion to take and make your trip an unforgettable experience. Paula among them, is fun and great!

Tierra Patagonia exceeded all expectations. Fantastic setting, great excursions, friendly staff, excellent food - what more could one ask for! The whole place was geared around ensuring that guests had the best possible experience of Patagonia, whether that be a relaxed atmosphere around the hotel, well-selected and executed trips with knowledgeable and enthusiastic guides - nothing was too much trouble for them. There was always someone on hand to advise/sort questions. Though situated on private land just outside the Torres del Paine park, it has the advantage that many excursions were exclusive to the hotel so you hardly saw other people. I have travelled extensively worldwide and this definitely ranks among the top hotels I have experienced. Highly recommended!

Your driver slows and turns into the discreetly marked gate on a gravel road. The Torres del Paine massif looms over the rolling hills of the steppe, but there is no hotel in sight. Your car moves parallel to a high hill, as a few rheas trot out of the way. You round a hairpin curve, cross the hill, and the amazing low-slung masterpiece of Cazu Zegers comes into view. It is at once both otherworldly and perfectly of this particular place in the world.

So begins a stay at Tierra Patagonia, which is one of those must-see, must-experience places.

Greeted by name by Chris the hotel manager, we were shown our room, a two-story suite with a massive window looking out across Lago Sarmiento to the Paine massif. Every architectural detail of the hotel is carried through to the rooms, down to the smallest details of the bathroom. What we came to love, too, was how the rooms play a role in ensuring you live in these precious moments: there are no televisions or WiFi in the rooms. There is a tv room, if you must, and WiFi only in the gathering, bar and dining areas.

We were then introduced to a second Chris, who manages the guides and expeditions, and who suggested we eat lunch and then head out on our first expedition. The dining room is a visual feast, and the food, from our first lunch on, was nearly always excellent. As noted in other reviews here, there are some minor service issues with the waitstaff in the dining room. Our observation was that this was primarily due to a lack of sufficiently multilingual servers for a place with such global appeal. It was not a material issue, though, and is something that the management team is clearly focused on.

Within two hours of arriving, we were off on the first of five expeditions (two full-day and three half-day), almost all of which took us into the Parque Nacional. Every guide we had was exceptional, and the expeditions themselves are well planned. Our expeditions ranged from the relatively easy to the very challenging, which was perfect for us. The range was sufficient and personalized enough that everyone we talked to was as pleased as we were with their experiences.

We've been fortunate to stay in some exceptional places, and this ranks among the best. It is very nearly on par with Aman resorts at which we've stayed. Perhaps what differentiates it is how well it immerses you into the very land on which it sits, rather than just cloistering you in luxury.
